This is interesting to me. I originally only included the bats in my post, but then went back and added Gio as an afterthought. I hadn't really considered him as a possible keeper, but the more I think about it, the more the idea appeals to me.

Bruce is probably not over priced but he isn't coming at a discount either. I would be surprised if he didn't go at a similar price at auction.
I guess this is the crux of the issue. How much are these guys likely to go for in the draft if I toss them back. I think Pujols goes for around $40, and Bruce probably in the upper $20's.
Pujols is currently the most expensive player in the league, at $46. Next in line is Braun at $40, and then MCab, Ellsbury, Upton and AGonz at $38.

The reason I got Cano at such cheap auction price is because I included $25 in auction money in a trade for him last season. $213-$25 gets me to $188.
